Abdulrasheed Bawa, the newly appointed Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) chairman has been urged to use the opportunity of his confirmation to chart a new course for the anti-graft agency.

Vanguard reports that the advice was given on Monday, March 1, by Osita Chidoka, Nigeria's former minister of aviation, in an open letter to Bawa.

The ex-corps marshal of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) advised Bawa not to be frightened and walk the path of Ibrahim Magu, his predecessor, who according to him was in the habit of arresting suspects before searching for evidence.

While calling for the digitization of operations of the EFCC, Chidoka warned the new EFCC head to be wary of those likely to undermine him due to his age.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart is of the opinion that some Nigerians may try to ridicule him publicly as an inexperienced young man by pushing Bawa to make rash decisions.

Chidoka went on to caution the anti-graft agency chairman to be careful of his walk with women, lest he falls into temptation.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the new chairman of the EFCC was on Sunday, February 28, advised by the PDP to avoid possible pitfalls associated with his office.

In a statement deemed as an encouragement, the PDP warned Bawa not to repeat the errors of his predecessor.

The major Nigerian opposition party urged him to stay away from party politics which in its opinion ruined Magu's image, that of the agency and trust in its effort to stamp out graft in the country.
